Wind turbine syndrome might just seem like a collection of unrelated health complaints to the untrained eye, but untrained eye is also a symptom of wind turbine syndrome. (4:20)

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NOW, FOLKS I GOTTA TELL YOU, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS GOTTEN ME DEBLESSED ABOUT OBAMA'S

RIDICULOUS REELECTION WAS THAT SPEECH HE GAVE LAST NIGHT ON EVIDENTLY NAIROBI TIME LAYING

OUT HIS PRIORITIES FOR THE NEXT TERM.

>> WE WANT OUR CHILDREN TO LIVE IN AN AMERICA THAT ISN'T BURDENED BY DEBT, ISN'T WEAKENED

BY INEQUALITY, THAT ISN'T THREATENED BY THE DESTRUCTIVE POWER OF A WARMING PLANET.

>> Stephen: YOU HEAR THAT?

WARMING PLANET.

THAT'S GLOBAL WARMING ( LAUGHTER ) WHETHER WE WANT HIS IEFLT ENERGIES OR NOT, HE IS GOING TO

BEND AMERICA OVER AND STICK SOLAR POWER WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE.

( LAUGHTER ) BUT AS I SUSPECTED, FOLKS, ALTERNATIVE ENERGY COME WITH RISKS.

>> AT FIRST, ERNIE MARSHALL WAS ALL FOR THE NEW WIND FARM GOING UP NEAR HIS HOME

>> AND IT SOUND LIKE A GREAT IDEA.

>> BUT SOON AFTER THE TURBINES STARTED ROLLING, HE SAID HE STARTED SUFFERING A LITANY OF

HEALTH COMPLAINTS.

>> I'VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY HEART.

I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY EARS.

IT TRAUMATIZES YOUR WHOLE BODY.

>> Stephen: YES, LIVING NEAR A WINDMILL CAN RUIN YOUR HEALTH.

THAT'S WHY EVERYBODY IN THE NIGHTER LAND IS ALWAYS SPARKING UP THEIR MEDICAL MARIJUANA.

NOW, FOLKS THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM WHAT'S BECOME KNOWN AS WIND TURBINE SYNDROME SAY IT'S CAUSED

BY THE NOISE, VIBRATIONS, AND MOVING SHADOWS OF THE TURNING BLADE.

AND I'VE HEARD THE SAME COMPLAINT ABOUT THE GILLETTE FUSION POWER PHANTOM RAZOR.

A STUDY BY THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY FOUND 150 HEALTH PROBLEMS ATTRIBUTED TO WIND TURBINES

INCLUDING MIGRAINE, SLEEP LOSS, STOMACH PROBLEMS, VERTIGO, WEIGHT GAIN, WEIGHT LOSS, HAIR

TURNING GRAY, TYPE 1 DIABETES, AND HERPES.

YES, HERPES.

AS IN, "NO, BABY, I DIDN'T CHEAT ON YOU.

OF IT THE WINDMILL.

IT USED MY TOILET SEAT." ( APPLAUSE ) LAUGH WHICH OF COURSE, WHICH OF COURSE BEGS THE QUESTION: WHO'S

BEEN ( BLEEP ) OUR WINDMILLS?

( LAUGHTER ) NOW, WIND TURBINE SYNDROME-- ( LAUGHTER ) -- MIGHT JUST SEEM LIKE A

COLLECTION OF UNRELATED HEALTH COMPLAINT TO THE UNTRAINED EYE-- BY THE WAY "UNTRAINED EYE "ALSO

A SYMPTOM OF WIND TURBINE SYNDROME.

THE RELATIONSHIP IS SEEMS THAT WAY IS BECAUSE IT PROBABLY IS.

SEVERAL STUDIES HAVE CONCLUDED THERE ARE NO EVIDENCE OFFING HEALTH EFFECTS FROM WIND TURBINES.

BUT JUST BECAUSE IT'S MADE UP DOESN'T MEAN IT'S NOT CONTABLOUS.

WIND TURBINE SYNDROME IS WHAT WE CAN CALL A COMMUNICATED DISEASE.

IT SPREADS VIA THE NOCEBO EFFECT BY BEING TALKED.

OKAY?

FOLLOW ME HERE.

THE THE NOCEBO EFFECT IS A NEGATIVE PLACEBO EFFECT.

IT'S WHY I HAD MY DOCTOR TAKE ME OFF MY PLACEBOS.

THEY KEPT CURING MY HYPOCHONDRIA.

THE POINT IS, YOU CAN GET-- YOU CAN GET WIND TURBINE SYNDROME JUST BY HEARING SOMEONE TALK

ABOUT IT.

LIKE I'M DOING NOW.

( LAUGHTER ) AND BECAUSE IT DOESN'T ACTUALLY EXIST, IT STANDS TO REASON, YOU COULD CATCH IT FROM ANY GREEN

TECHNOL I DON'T APPROVE OF.

FOR EXAMPLE, DO YOU LIVE NEAR A SOLAR PANEL?

OR DO YOU OWN A SOLAR POWERED CALCULATOR?

AND HAVE YOU HAD ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS-- HEADACHE, NAUSEA, LACK OF NAUSEA, FORGETTING WHERE

YOU PUT YOUR KEYS OR PROBLEMS BREATHING UNDER WATER?

( LAUGHTER ) WELL, SOUND LIKE YOU'VE GOT A BAD CASE OF SOLAR PANEL SYNDROME.

THE POINT IS, OBAMA'S GOING TO KILL US ALL.

( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE ) SO WE SHOULD ALL JUST KEEP BURNING FOSSIL FUELS.

THAT WAY THE PROBLEM WON'T BE ALL IN YOUR HEAD.

IT WILL BE SPREAD EVENLY THROUGHOUT YOUR LUNGS.

( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE ) WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
